Default Oil leak - recommended fixes

Have a slight oil leak on top of the valve cover. Itís been there for a while (4-6 years, and in someways maybe longer 🤷🏼ó♂️).

Any idea on where it would be from and what it would cost to fix it? I think itís the oil pressure sensor, but thatís just a guess.

Looks like the vvt solenoid seal is leaking.
